Influence of Online Games on Child Development

Influence of Online Games on Child Development
Rapid technological development, making it easier for children to access various kinds of information they want very easily through an internet connection. One that can be accessed by children is online games. Online games are games that connect players through an internet connection. The development of online games cannot be separated from the development of games from generation to generation. The first generation game appeared Atari 2600, this game was a game released in 1977 which was better known as VCS (Video Computer System), then the second generation game appeared with Atari 7800 in 1986, then the third generation appeared NES (Nintendo Entertainment System). The fourth generation is playstation to the current generation game, online games that come with internet connections such as counter strike games, age of empires, clash of clans, and others. Changes in games from generation to generation are very influential on the players who are often called gamers, the gamers are competing to own and play the online games they enjoy.

Online games have a considerable influence on people who play the game, one of which is children because they already have and play online games. Children today are accustomed to gadgets to play online games, this is a mistake from parents. Parents may only want to show affection to children by providing various facilities such as sophisticated gadgets, but indirectly parents have taught negative things to children that can interfere with children's development in the future. Online games can have a negative influence on child development, a very visible influence is that children will forget time and spend hours playing online games, children will be addicted to playing online games so that children will have a constant desire to play, as a result the child will experienced minus eye diseases such as always looking at computer screens and other gadgets. Another negative influence is that online games can damage a child's moral and social behavior, because children will have selfishness, be casual, stubborn, and children will close themselves from the outside world so that children rarely interact with others around them. Besides that online games also make children commit criminal acts such as stealing to just playing online games that require fees to pay for an internet connection.

Besides having a negative influence, online games have a positive influence on children's development. Online games aside from being entertainment media for children, the results of research that have been conducted show that some online games have a positive influence on the development of children's IQ, online games can also help children to increase their memory. Many online games can bring players to be good, and can think logically. For example is the Tetris game which is considered as an online game to build IQ development, because this game requires enthusiasm, speed, and high logic power. In addition to Tetris there are also online games that have a positive influence on children's development, namely the Backgammon game, this game can help children practice concentration and focus such as playing chess.

The number of online games that can be accessed by children makes more and more negative influences on child development, in this case the role of parents in the selection of online games that are appropriate to the child's personality and age of the child is very necessary. Choose the right online game according to age and the child can use his mind to play so that it can hone the child's brain. Parents should provide understanding for children so as not to spend time just to play online games, and provide an understanding that children's assignments are learning, while online games are only a means of entertainment.

Neuter Scooter Indiana - The Spay And Neuter Clinic That's Mobile

Neuter Scooter Indiana

Image source:

Ever wished there was a mobile spay and neuter clinic that would come to you? With the mobile clinic offered from neuter scooter, Indiana residents are finding this is exactly what they have available to them.

A mobile spay and neuter clinic that travels through various states offering the surgery for neutering cats at the usual cost of around 50 bucks to have your cat neutered.

Of course that's assuming that the cat is your pet.

They also have discounts available in line with the popular trap-neuter-release programs, where they will neuter feral cats for $20, but for the majority of cat lovers they would probably bring the cat in a pet carrier, rather than a live trap that's required in line with the T-N-R discount they offer.

Without the live trap they'd assume the cats your pet.

Still, even at the cost for a mobile spay and neuter clinic, there's surely going to be a lot of people interested in the mobile services from "The Neuter Scooter. Indiana residents have this available to them and the mobile surgery is already being expanded to include other districts as well. Oregon is also being covered along side various others that continues to be expanded upon.

Here's a list of places currently being served by the neutering cats spay and neuter clinic by The Neuter Scooter -

and Ohio

This is animal welfare at it's finest. A group of highly skilled individuals providing a spay and neuter clinic on the go.

Doing their part for animal control.

For folks that may find it hard traveling to a veterinary clinic, this is going to be an invaluable asset to communities. It's also likely to benefit the states served by "The Neuter Scooter". Indiana being one place where feral cats are pretty much the norm. Thus the need for more neutering cats services to be both available and easily accessible to the public.

In my own opinion, this is what's needed. More neutering cats clinics being accessible and priced where folks can contribute to animal welfare in more ways than just making donations to animal shelters. This can only do so much and unfortunately is never enough to put an end to cats being euthenized.

The need for the public to get involved is becoming critical, and with the mobile clinical services being available now and continuing to expand their reach, it's going to be easier for communities to get involved in the animal welfare issue by participating and having their cat neutered.

Indonesia's most advanced online game developer in Southeast Asia

Indonesia's most advanced online game developer in Southeast Asia
The growth of the gaming industry continues to soar every year. Latest Newzoo survey data in 2014, the game industry in Indonesia is worth Rp 2.3 trillion. Every year about 100 new games are born by game developers. Of course this is tempting news for industry players, especially games.

Even the Creative Economy body formed by President Joko Widodo once touched on the Indonesian game industry. Now the Creative Economy Agency includes game production in work plans. As an association that accommodates game developers, of course AGI (Indonesian Game Association) requires the role of the government to advance the game industry. Moreover, this industry is the largest industry in the world.

Many foreign investors are now eyeing this industry. "Investors see Indonesia's game developers are currently the most advanced in Southeast Asia. So many investors have entered Indonesia, especially this past year," said Chairman of the Indonesian Game Association Andi Suryanto, yesterday.

Seeing the huge opportunity of the game industry in Indonesia, Andi also hoped the government would provide support for this Industry. "Hopefully, in the next 1 year, a lot of Indonesian-made games can become global," Andi said.

Following is Andi Suryanto's narrative to Pramirvan Datu Aprillatu from about the development of the online game industry in Indonesia:

Has the creative economy contributed to the online gaming industry?

From our meeting at AGI, currently the Creative Economy Agency is still making work plans.

As chairman of AGI, what is your vision and mission for the development of online games in Indonesia?

AGI's vision makes the Indonesian market and game industry superior in competing globally with high standards and technology. Then for its mission, first to expand the relationship between companies from various fields engaged in the game sector, then to improve the quality and final service of games in Indonesia so that they can compete internationally and finally become an intermediary between the game industry and the Indonesian Government.During the inauguration of the chairman of the Creative Economy Agency in the palace, online games were alluded to?

Of course. Games today include the world's largest business industry for creative industries.

AGI's war is concrete for what kind of online game industry?

AGI often holds activities for the Indonesian game industry gathering, both local and international gatherings.

What difficulties have AGI faced so far?

So far the progress of AGI is still good. Our main difficulty is still to invite all game developers to join together. Because game developers in Indonesia are numerous and scattered throughout Indonesia.

What is the AGI program in the short term?

The AGI program in the short term is forming a rating game with the government. Currently being finalized, hopefully this year can be run. This game rating is a guide for gamers to find out whether the game is suitable to be played with age.

Before the establishment of AGI, what was the condition of Indonesian online games?Before the existence of AGI, in Indonesia we could not make local and international gatherings. So that the information held by each company is far more limited.

If from AGI data, how many publishers are active in Indonesia? Did the developer join?

There are around 20 active publishers currently active. There are around 100 developers.

Does AGI also produce online game law specifically?

No, AGI here has a role to facilitate the climate needs of the Indonesian game industry. AGI also often communicates with the government as a resource person for the gaming industry.

Where is the direction of developing game developers in the Indonesian market?

Currently Indonesian developers are looking at new trends, namely mobile games. There are also many investors who invest in Indonesian game developers.

Our local game products are still dominated by Console and Lan. Are there opportunities for first person shooters (FPS)?

Indonesia is a country with a very large gamer market. All types of games have a market. Including first person shooter (FPS).What are the difficulties for local publishers to develop FPS online game products?

First person shooter (FPS) online games are now quite well developed in Indonesia. No problem.

How do you calculate the benefits of online gaming? Are licenses, profit sharing, or other?

There is no standard method in the creative industry. Can be in the form of licenses, profit sharing, buying breaks and others.

What is the weakness of our online game?

Weaknesses of online games are mainly from the side of hacking (network breakthrough). Because in Indonesia there is also no strict law to hack software, so many gamers don't know that hacking is actually a crime.

What attracted foreign investors to enter the Indonesian market?

Investors see Indonesian game developers currently among the most advanced in Southeast Asia. So many investors have entered Indonesia, especially in the past 1 year.

What are your hopes for games in Indonesia?I think the online game market and mobile games in Indonesia are quite large. The hope is that in the next 1 year, there will be many Indonesian-made games that can be global. For the government, I hope the gaming industry can also be supported by its climate like other creative industries such as music and film. Name: Andi Suryanto

My Husband Is In Love With Another Woman - 3 Things You Can Do Right Now

My Husband Is In Love With Another Woman - 3 Things You Can Do Right Now

Image source:

If you're finding yourself lamenting that "my husband is with another woman," you're in a difficult situation.  Learning how to get your husband to be interested in you again, and subsequently dealing with the emotions and struggle of a broken marriage, requires time and effort.  Here are 3 things you can do to approach and deal with this problem.

1. How can I get him to be interested in me again?

While it might seem contrary to common sense, getting your husband to be interested in you again after he's having an affair with another woman is actually dependent on your actions, not his.

You have to change your own actions, and take charge of your own life.  Look at it this way: your husband has decided to turn his attention to another woman, so you no longer owe him anything.  You can do what you want now. 

When you take this attitude, you will become more authoritative and attractive.  People are drawn to those who are free-spirited, or who do what they want.  If you start doing the things you want with no regard to what your husband thinks anymore, you will automatically gain his interest.

2. How can I deal with the pain?

It is painful to know your husband's fallen for someone else, but know this: often we think we're in love with someone, when in reality, this feeling results from an unmet need within ourselves.

Your husband is probably infatuated with this other woman because she's new and exciting and gives him feelings of passion.  But you can respark that passion within your own marriage once you start to live your own free life, doing the things you want.

This doesn't mean neglecting family or the kids or anything; it just means taking charge of your destiny.  You don't have to think of yourself as sacrificing everything for what other people want of you. 

Make a list of your hobbies and passions.  Take steps to get involved in them - even if it's as simple as painting, crafting, knitting, whatever you might be interested in.  But don't do anything just because you think it's expected of you.  Do what you really want to.

This will have the side benefit of distracting you from your husband's affair.

3. Will we ever reconnect and have that spark again?

Yes, you can have the spark of passion back with your husband, but it's dependent on you.  He has lost interest, so you must be the instigator.

Start by pursuing your own interests and passions.  As time progresses, he will gradually lose interest in this other woman, especially if he sees you doing what you want to do.  (While this may not always be the case depending on the marriage, it's often true that couples just lose the spark because one of them isn't happy.)

When your husband's interest in you starts to return, it's very important that you continue to live the life you want, doing the things you want, so that he'll see you as the object of his desire.

Generate billions thanks to online games, see the series of inspiring stories
In the past, games were seen as a hobby that was counterproductive because they always spent money. But this kind of view must have been countered, the article is now an online game or online game, has become the livelihood of many people.

This is cool if 1 million LEGO is transformed into a Bugatti Chiron, it can be driven too!

Now, there is the name eSports. The eSports players, who may have been seen as people whose hobbies linger in front of the PC, are now recognized as athletes.

Professional eSports athletes also have teams managed by managers like other sports teams.

The income of eSports athletes is not only Rp. 100-200 thousand, but can be up to tens of billions of rupiah.

Reporting from the e-sports earning site, Wednesday (4/4/2018), it turns out that from the 50 richest eSports athletes, athletes who only occupy 50th position can earn as much as US $ 941 thousand (Rp. 12 billion).

Meanwhile, for eSport athletes in the top ten, their average income is above US $ 1.9 million (Rp. 20 billion rupiah).

The top three was occupied by Saahil Aror from the United States who had revenues of US $ 2.9 million (Rp. 39 billion), then ranked second was Amer Barqawi from Jordan with an income of US $ 3.1 million (Rp. 42 billion).

For the first rank, the name Kuro Takhasomi from Germany was recorded. The 25-year-old man has an income of US $ 3.5 million (Rp. 48 billion).ESports athletes who earn fantastic income are not only concentrated in Europe, but from various parts of the world, such as China, Canada, Pakistan, Singapore and South Korea.

The most popular Dota 2

The majority of eSports athletes earn fantastic income from the Dota 2 game. The Dota 2 game has become popular among gamers since it was released on July 9, 2013.

Dota 2 has a genre of Multiplayer Online Battle Arena (MOBA). This genre is increasingly popular because it invites players to form teams and compete together.

Besides Dota 2, the League of Legends game that has the MOBA genre is also in demand among eSports players.

Ready to compete at the 2022 Asian Games

The Olympic Council of Asia and Alisports announce eSports competition will be one of the sports contested at the 2022 Asian Games in China.

With this plan, eSports is a step closer to being competed in other major sports such as the Olympics.

Responding to this, Epitcio "TACO" de Melo, one of the best Counter Strike players: Global Offensive (CS: GO) welcomed happily."Yes, hopefully this can be realized quickly. As many people already know, the eSports industry is currently developing rapidly rather than other sports," Taco told Tekno at Qudos Bank Arena, Sydney, Australia some time ago.

He added, "Not much different from other sports, eSports has several similar preparations. We practice every day by discussing strategies and preparing body conditions."

Even so, opposition and obstacles still exist.

"They are parents and still have an old-fashioned mind. It's all a matter of time, because many people realize how big the potential of eSports is growing rapidly," Taco said.

Seeing that this branch was delighted to be welcomed by many eSports lovers, hopefully many people who are still opposing will melt with this great potential in the future.

My Blended Family Wont Blend--Help! Part I

My Blended Family Wont Blend--Help! Part I

Image source:

I dont know what to do anymore, said Jill, stepmother to two teen girls and mom to one biological son, aged 10. My stepdaughters dont respect meIm the evil stepmother to themand pretty much ignore whatever I say. And my son is constantly telling me that my husband isnt fair, and that he treats him differently than he treats his two girls. Sometimes I get so exhausted by the whole thing I just want to get up and leave.

We often jokingly say, You dont get a manual on how to parent kids. But each adult in a blended family brings a set of ideas about parenting with them, in addition to their own prior experiences. This often makes for a very complex situation, and its one of the reasons why parents in a blended family can get stuck in some disappointing and frustrating cycles of behavior. Look at it this way: there are so many different points of view and aspects to this relationship that it can naturally be very confusing for everyone. The children also have different experiences and perceptions of the parent-child relationshipand because of the very fact that they are children, they will not surrender those ideas easily. Remember, the secret to having a blended family is having blended adults. The kids just have a responsibility to live with each other respectfully and to respect the other parent.

I think the first question that has to be asked is What does blended mean? Does it mean everyone calls the woman Mommy and the man Daddy? Does blended mean each parent supports the other parent no matter what? Or does blended mean that a couple comes to a series of decisions together about their expectations and thoughts regarding the development of childrenand then they operationalize those ideas in how they treat their kids and what they expect from them?

I believe that blending two families is the most perplexing and difficult job two adults can take on. There are no quick answers or easy solutions. But there are some guidelines and suggestions I can give you to help you think about the scope and nature of some of the common problems that surface within your familyand how to solve them.

How to Get on the Same Page with Your Spouse

Before You Get Married: Establish Roles and Resolve the Conflicts You Can Resolve

One type of conflict that occurs between parents in a blended family is having a difference of opinion about general parenting ideas.This might include when bedtime should be, how homework is done, and how much TV is allowed in the house. Many of these differences can be talked about and resolved before you get married.

If your spouse parents differently than you do, talk about that openlyhopefully before you get married. Often people fall in love and dont face those kinds of issues. They think it will all work out on its ownbut the truth is, things usually dont work out unless the people working them out have the skills to make that happen. Even if you are already married, I suggest you sit down and start talking about the parenting issues that are important to you today.

But dont kid yourself, although you may agree to things and work them out ahead of time, as stressors and different situations happen, realize that its common for both you and your spouse to react in ways you didnt anticipate. This is because family dynamics change, kids change, circumstances outside the family change. To put it plainly, its impossible to plan for everything.

The key is to be adult and understanding of each other. For example, its not uncommon for Democrats and Republicans to be happily married to one another. In the same way, if youre in a blended family situation, you have to find a way to live with your partner by respecting the other persons point of view when it comes to decisions about how to raise the kids in the family, too.

Recognize the Importance of the Birth Parent

Its very important to establish the importance of the birth parent. This means that the birth parent is the primary parent. Think of it this way: marriages break up sometimes, but the birth parent-birth child relationship is never going to dissolve. Because of the birth parent-child connection, the birth parent should be the decision maker of last resort for their biological child, as long as the decision around that child protects the emotional and physical safety of everyone else in the family. What that means is that when we have conflicts, the birth parent will make the final decision, but that doesnt mean the child should be abusive or hurtful.

That way when your stepchild is saying, Youre not my father, the answer is Youre right, Im not. But these are the expectations that your mother and I have, and if you dont follow through you will be held accountable. It allows you to avoid getting into those kinds of power struggles with your stepchild.

If your spouse isnt parenting your child the way you think they should be, you need to be able to communicate with them about that and work things out. If theres a disagreement, the birth parents decision takes primacy and the stepparent has to be mature enough and trusting enough in the relationship to go along with it, without a lot of pouting and self-pity.

Communicate Constantly and Present a United Front

I cant stress this enough: the foundation for blended families rests on the principles of communication and cooperation between both adults. Compromise is the name of the game. And adults have to communicate, communicate, communicate. In a blended family, there is an absolute necessity for both adults to be on the same page. These two adults, when they decide to get together and marry, have to make a decision that theyre going to communicate about things in private, away from the kids.

The rule has to be, Whatever agreement we come up with, we have to present a united front on it. And if we disagree, the birth parent should have the right to say, "This is my choice, this is my decision. And in fact, the common theme in the family should be that Mom and Dad talk things out, that they look into things and work things out together.

Dont Throw Labels Around

Labels are one of the biggest roadblocks to communication, because once you start labeling somebody, communication is overyouve effectively cut it off. If one parent labels the other as being too soft, or too hardline, those labels interfere with solving the problem. And by the way, thats why people do label. Genuine communication is very difficult emotionally, and if both people arent on the same page, they often avoid it. How do they avoid it? By arguing, fighting, blaming, and labeling.

Lets say theres a dispute over the amount of time the kids in the family are spending on video games. You want to limit their game time, but your spouse thinks the kids should be allowed to play as much as they want. It doesnt help when one adult says to the other, Youre too soft on them, or Youre too rigid. Again, thats just labeling the other person. Instead, you need to sit down and ask investigative questions like, What are you trying to accomplish by letting the kids play video games without putting a time limit on them? So the question becomes, What is your goal here? And your spouse might respond, I want them to feel like home is a place where they can relax and do the things they enjoy as much as they want, as long as they take care of their responsibilities. And they should be asking you, What are you trying to accomplish by limiting the video game time? You might say, I want them to have some structure in their lives. I think video games have their place, but they should not be our kids main source of entertainment. Im worried that if we let them play as much as they want, itll become a cop-out and theyll play video games instead of doing other things.

Now both of these people have a legitimate perspective. The challenge is for them to come up with some kind of compromise. You do this by figuring out what youre trying to accomplish or avoid. Once you do thatand can come up with a compromise instead of arguing or labeling the other personyoure really communicating. Remember, basing decisions on what youre trying to accomplish is often much more effective than basing them on the way things were on when you were a kid.

Remember, the key to finding harmony in a blended family is communication and maturity on the part of the parents. One important thing to realize is that the kids may never blend the way you want them to, or they may blend wonderfully. Again, the people who really have to blend are the parents. And blending as adults means seeing your spouse as a partner, not as an obstacle.

Believe me, I know that this advice is easy to read but difficult to do. Know that although a lot of emotional labor has to take place, the fruits of your efforts will translate into much more peace in your home.

Mentally Preparing for a Disaster

Mentally Preparing for a Disaster

Image source:

There is a lot of emotional and mental stress when an actual disaster happens. It can be really easy to lose all that composure and coolness when the world is falling apart and people are rioting on the streets or dying.

It is a whole different story when talking about a disaster as opposed to actually living through one. It is almost the same as playing a video game version of a sport and actually playing the sport. Part of it can only be speculated, and the other part of it has to actually be experienced.

Now, there is a lot that can be done by way of preparing for an actual disaster such as storing up emergency food and creating 72-hour kits, but simply put there is some preparation that is more mental than physical. There are a lot of factors that need to be considered.

First and foremost one of the greatest mental preparations for a disaster is actually having some physical items prepared. For example, if a parent knows that a family has enough food storage to make it through at least a year of being without resources, there will be a lot less mental stress.

The simple assurance of knowingly being prepared can do a whole lot to help the mind be at peace, especially in crunch time. This will also allow a parent to think more clearly in the midst of disaster.

One more mental preparation that can be done with a family, or even individually, is to have a particular plan of escape in the event of different types of emergencies. For example, in the case of an earthquake everyone will meet a particular location or likewise with a flood or tidal wave.

These types of preparations, although seemingly small, can make a huge difference in a time when it seems that the world is in chaos. It can help people focus on what to do next.

Much of these preparations is trying to anticipate what types of situations may arise so as to not be as thrown off when they do occur. This type of planning can make all the difference in a real disaster.

There may be no way to anticipate everything that can go wrong or every feeling and anxiety that will be experienced in a disaster, but the more prepared someone is, the better off they are. Again, this could mean the difference between survival and perishing.
